What are some lessons to learn from the Cuban healthcare system?
Regarding the article “Cuban doctors could offer best practices on improving community health in Chicago” (ModernHealthcare.com, Jan. 18), I am in no position to comment on the quality of healthcare in Cuba, but if Cuba is superior to us in so many ways, then what conclusions are we to draw?
Could it be quality healthcare does not depend on expensive medical degrees from expensive universities? Quality healthcare does not depend on bleeding-edge technology? Quality healthcare does not depend on money spent per capita? That’s $9,403 in the U.S. vs. $817 in Cuba, according to 2014 data from the World Bank. Am I missing anything? Ryan Baker Irving, Texas
